    CREAMLINE seeks to complete a series sweep as PetroGazz tries to extend the title showdown in the PCL Reinforced Conference on Saturday at the Arena in San Juan.

    The second match of the best-of-three series is set at 4 p.m. after the presentation of individual awards.

    The Cool Smashers look to secure their second straight Reinforced Conference title and third crown in the PVL.

    Led by imports Kuttika Kaewpin and Ale Blanco as well as Alyssa Valdez, Creamline drew the first blood with a four-set win on Wednesday.

    Valdez and setter Jia Morado insist the Cool Smashers are not to thinking too far ahead.

    “For sure yung PetroGazz, kitang-kita namin sa latter part of the set very eager sila,” Valdez told reporters on Wednesday.

      “We're going to think that it's still game one, it's still another game. Di namin ipe-pressure ang sarili namin but for sure kasi, paghahandaan kami ng Petro Gazz,” Morado added.

      PetroGazz is confident it can force a decider on Sunday at the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo City.

      “Sana wake up call kasi sabi ko nga kung ‘yung situation natin ngayon pinili natin ‘yan na mas mahirap talaga na ita-twice to beat natin sila,” PetroGazz coach Arnold Laniog told scribes.

      “So kung pinili natin ito, panindigan natin as a team and hindi individual. Kung gusto nating ma-extend ‘yung game sa Sunday, umpisahan natin sa training.”

      Laniog is hoping the team would avoid errors, after committing 31 in the opener.

      Wilma Salas and Janisa Johnson are also expected to deliver much more than their 30 percent attack rate in the first match.

      Meanwhile, BanKo also seeks to sweep Pacifictown-Army in the battle for third at 2 p.m.

      The Perlas Spikers are looking to claim their third consecutive bronze medal.
